Major Investment Projects



LOCATION: Black Sea, Türkiye

STAGE: In process

DATES: By 2028

TPAO will drill up to 40 production wells at Sakarya by 2028, with ten wells completed by 2023 in the first phase of development. Altogether, these ten wells are expected to deliver 10 million cubic metres (Mcm) of natural gas a day.

The second phase will involve the development of the remaining 30 wells, with a combined production of 40 Mcm a day, between 2023 and 2028.

The Sakarya gas field is being developed with two units, a subsea natural gas production system, and an onshore natural gas processing facility in the Filyos Industrial Zone, Zonguldak province.

A pipeline of approximately 170 km, laid in the seabed at a depth of 2,000 m, will connect the two units. The pipeline will transport the produced gas to the onshore facility for processing. Türkiye’s Petroleum Pipeline Company (BOTAS) will transport the processed gas to the national gas network through a 36 km-long onshore pipeline.


OPERATOR/INITIATOR: Petkim Petrokimya Holding A.Ş.

LOCATION: Black Sea, Türkiye

STAGE: In process

DATES: No data

Within the scope of Occupational Health and Safety projects, one of the biggest investments is for the renovation of pipelines at the common pipe site which poses an HSE risk, and the replacement of their routing. In strategic projects, the most important investments involve the modernisation investments of piers. With these investments, the infrastructure of the piers will be strengthened, HSE risks will be eliminated, and the piers will be modernised in such a way as to adapt to the latest technology.

The modernisation of Jetty 3 and Jetty 2 piers within Petkim Refinery enables the transfer of raw materials and final products between ships and production facilities. At the end of this two-stage project, the transfer capacities of Jetty 3 and Jetty 2 will be increased to a total of 80,000 DWT.
